Smear Campaign California

March 08, 2015

Boom... Boom... Boom... Do you hear that?  It is the beat of a war drum--one that is rallying anti-vaping proponents to lump your vaping supplies in the same pile as cigarettes, though many of us are trying to get away from these noxious little sticks.  Politicians are throwing bills on the table, like cards on a blackjack table, in attempts to ban vaping in public places and tax vaping goods as tobacco based products.  While these politicians fight with deep pocketed lobbyists who will battle to protect their interests, the vaping community must continue to band together to protect our interests with information and action.

We are including a small collection of links to articles that shed some light on why we are seeing negative publicity against our industry.

Electronic Cigarettes Remain Top Tax Target for Politicians - Forbes

California Joins Baseless Bashing of E-Cigarettes - Forbes

The Misbegotten Crusade Against E-Cigarettes - Wall Street Journal

We are also including links to two organizations that we believe are leading the fight in favor of vapers across the US.  Support the effort and find out how you can take action.

Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) 

The Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association (CASAA)

Knowledge is power.  Education will stop the witch hunt.  "Read more, learn more, change the globe".  Vape on.
